Dual core or Core Duo

Not so long ago the latest must have processor was the dual core ( I got a Pentium D Dual Core 2.8 which I don't think is as good as the old Pentium 4 3.06 on my laptop). The dual core seems to have disappeared to be replaced with the core duo. Was the dual core a flop? What's the difference?

No, not a flop simply a development along the way. Look out quad core is just around the corner.
